Kathryn Mayorga's rape complaint against Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo in the United States remains, one of the complainant's attorneys told AFP.
"The charges have not been dropped. We just took our complaint to the state level (Nevada), because we filed the same before a federal court, "said Larissa Drohobyczer, who represents the complainant, the American, Kathryn Mayorga.
Bloomberg reported today that the complaint against the Juventus footballer would have been withdrawn in a lawsuit filed last month in Nevada's state court in Las Vegas but did not say whether the woman accusing Ronaldo of rape has reached agreement with the footballer Portuguese.
In September last year, 34-year-old Kathryn Mayorga filed a complaint against Cristiano Ronaldo for a crime that would have been committed in 2009.
The case was reopened after the woman presented new information on the alleged violation, collaborating with the authorities in the investigation. In the US state of Nevada, sex crimes do not prescribe as long as they have been properly reported to the authorities.
The defense of Cristiano Ronaldo always said that what happened between the footballer and Mayorga was by mutual agreement.
